RSSS 6.0 Pro-Am re-schedule #3 event for Sept 8 and announce - THE FINALS - October 6
Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 30 August, 2012 : - - The Revolt Summer Surf Series or RSSS 6.0, has re-scheduled the third event of the four part Pro Am surf series for September 8. The third event previously scheduled for August 25 was postponed due to various factors, the most obvious was a number of surf forecasts predicting 0 - 1 ft waves. The forecast was accurate. We would like to thank the athletes and our sponsors for their support of the decision. Register online for the third event Sept. 8 at revoltsurfseries.com
BREAKING NEWS! The Lifeguards and City Of San Diego have granted the RSSS a permit to hold the final event on the SOUTH SIDE OF CRYSTAL PIER - October 6. There has never been a surf contest allowed at that area before. The 'Swim Only' Zone has been in effect 24/7 - 365/days-a-year... for decades. The only way to surf that peak south of the Pier without getting yelled at (or receiving a citation) is to compete in the RSSS 6.0 on October 6.
This positions the whole event in front of the the Pacific BeachFest. Beachfest is the annual end of summer festival along the Boardwalk and outlying streets with hundreds of vendors, music stages & beer gardens. The event attracts between 50-75,000 people. To make the day even more exciting the RSSS has added a Master's Division on October 6 to allow San Diego's elite an opportunity to surf the peak. Register online.

A signature San Diego summer sporting event, the RSSS has been widely supported by surfers and media from around the globe.
